Ten most frequently asked questions

Question #1 - How do you market my property and find a good tenant?

  • Answer:  I utilize many resources when marketing your property. I create a unique rental property website using your address as the web address and take several pictures to create an online virtual tour, flyers & area information which provides a map and gives viewers area information such as schools, restaurants,etc. I then place your property with pictures in the local MLS for other Companies and their Agents to view & show. I also place Ads with pictures on several local classified sites such as OC Register, Pennysaver, Recycler, Craigslist, Apartment Hunters...just to name a few. The more options the better to generate more interest and showings and get your property rented quickly to the best qualified tenants.

Question #2 - How do you qualify prospective tenants?

  • Answer:  I follow the guidelines provided by California Landlord/tenant law. A rental application is required with I.D. and all information is verified and based on credit, rental references & employment background. Each Adult is required to fill out a separate rental application and provide their own personal information. Along with a standard credit report, I provide a criminal and court records search, to insure we've thoroughly gathered a complete background.

Questions #3 - How do you determine the best price for my property?

  • Answer:  I do a comprehensive search of similar properties in your community. I compare properties with amenities, similarities and location to get the best matches. Based on my extensive knowledge and experience with most communities in south orange county, I am able to determine the right price that will give you the best return and also help rent your home quickly.

Questions #4 - How long will it take to find a tenant for my property?

  • Answer:  There are many factors that contribute to a property's value. Location, price and condition of the rental property play the largest role.  It is difficult to say that your home will rent in a specific timeframe.  But, if your rental property is in good condition, in a good neighborhood and priced right, it should rent quickly with the help of my comprehensive advertising campaign.  A typical home will rent in 45 days on average.  It could rent in a week or it may take longer than the average based on market condition and other factors mentioned above.

Questions #5 - Why is my property a good investment?

  • Answer: I believe there are four main benefits in owning investment property.

  1. Income: Cash flow

  2. Equity Buildup: While the tenant is paying your mortgage, your mortgage is decreasing 

  3. Tax Savings: Tax laws may provide a shelter for depreciation

  4. Appreciation: Over the past twenty years, homes in our area have increased substantially. And, although our economy has been depressed, your real estate investment in our coastal communities will remain strong. And, Rents continue to rise!

Question #6 - How is maintenance handled?

  • Answer: Our tenants can call, email or fax in a non-emergency request. Our vendors are required to contact the tenant and arrange repairs "by appointment" with the tenant. The vendor will inspect the problem and provide an estimate for repair prior to being given approval to begin any necessary repairs. I will then contact the Property Owner direct via phone or email and explain in detail our complaint, repair & cost to remedy.  In some cases, I will visit the Rental Property and provide pictures so that you will have a complete description to make a decision. 

Questions #7 - How often do you check on my property?

  • Answer:  I drive by each property every few months. If there is an issue with a maintenance request or cause for concern, I will immediately schedule an appointment to view the property.  If there is a need to view a property more frequently, I will make the proper arrangements to accommodate the Property Owner at all times. 

Questions #8 - How long do we sign an agreement for?

  • Answer:  Every Property Owner will have a preference for the length of time of hiring a Property Manager and signing an agreement.  I strive to earn long-term business by doing "good" business. I recommend that each agreement be signed for a minimum of 90 days initially and will continue indefinitely until either party gives a proper 30-day written notice to cancel services.  I am always willing to accommodate short-term agreements under special circumstances such as a vacation home rental. And, should your rental circumstances change, as life does, I do not feel obligating someone to a long-term agreement will benefit either party.

Question #9 - Can you pay my bills?

  • Answer:  We can pay the following: mortgages, insurance, taxes, HOA fees, utilities and any other monthly property expenses. These are paid out of the proceeds from the rental income received each month.  In some cases, we will set up a reserve of funds to cover regular items that must be paid by a specific date each month.

Question #10 - How will you handle my monthly accounting and Owners proceeds?

  • Answer:  By following California state Laws & guidelines, I have an established trust account for all property funds. I try to adhere to a strict schedule each month. Rents are due on the 1st and will be deposited between the 1st and the 5th. Monthly property expenses will be paid from the 5th to the 10th. I handle all of my accounting first-hand so there are no "$ mix-up's". Monthly Closing Statements and Owner's proceeds will be generated from the 10th to the 15th. I will mail (US postal) and/or email your statements. I will mail (US postal) your Owner's proceeds check or electronically deposit your funds (24-hour turnaround) at the same time that I generate the monthly Closing Statement for your Property. My many years of accounting experience and ethical nature will insure that your funds are diligently handled.
